I have just bought an ADVENT 4489

Not being a technophobe I have absolutely no idea how to connect to the internet. I already have a computer connected to the internet via cable (not wireless enabled). Does anyone have a clue what I am to do next??? Was told instore just to unplug the 'ethernet' cable from existing computer to netbook, but obviously that hasn't worked...Heeellllp please!!!!

    Have two laptops connected via wireless broadband connection. Purchased Advent 4489 and can pick up the router but still will not connect. Pinging in ip config displays a message media disconnected. Says also there is no network present. Virgin media have told us that we need a new network key, this was given but still no joy. Any help appreciated. Our son was mega disappointed that he could not connect to the Internet on Xmas day........

Finaly got mine to work on wireless. dial into your router and make sure firewall is off, ( 192.168.1.1 should be your router address )
if your netbook cant find a wireless network, select wireless conection and change it from automatic to prefered then type in the name of your router then it should connect directly to it . if u need more help email me at dean_tudor@hotmail.co.uk

IT sounds like you need to replace your battery. If your laptop (notebook) is working properly while plugged in with Ac power we know it is not your power supply.

I would visit the manufacturer's website for replacement batteries. One complaint I have read about over and over on these particular systems is that the battery life is very poor.

Is it a wired or wireless connection? Go into control panel, network connections and make sure the local area connection is enabled. You could try right clicking on it and going to repair.
